Two players red carded in Georgia vs Canada mass brawl

The Georgians need a long break from international rugby. They need to think about whether they want to play the same game as everyone else, or whether they want to start a brawl in every game at the slightest provocation. Because it seems they're mostly there for the fight.

The Springboks outmuscle Wales at the Millennium Stadium

Ha ha, I'm sorry we disappoint you as a nation. I'll have a word. We'll do better.

But while you're here, care to point out where Skinstadt and Pearce called for props to be sent off?

The Springboks outmuscle Wales at the Millennium Stadium

The Jean de Villiers try was outstanding. It had it all: pace (Habana), power (du Plessis) and skills (de Villiers).

Second half fizzled out a bit, but it was still a great game of rugby to watch. Feel bad for Jonathan Davies - he was in top form until he got injured.

Pity that part of the game was ruined by Roland sending off two props (one of whom had only been on the field for a minute). Even worse was the whingey commentator repeatedly calling for this. People pay to watch, amongst other things, a scrummaging contest. And this was a great one which Wales were actually winning. He could have just stationed a touch judge on the far side for a good idea of who was binding, collapsing, hinging etc. Hope he got a bollocking afterwards.

Bismarck Du Plessis controversially yellow carded for huge hit on Dan Carter

Not only did he have the option to check the replay, he DID. And he still carded the player because he had made up his mind already. And he had made up his mind because the "victim" was Carter, and Poite, like so many officials, is star struck by Carter and McCaw. And that's why Poite is a terrible referee, regardless of how sorry you feel for him and his financial situation.

The Top 5 Crazy Cards of All Time - Rugby HQ

I'm sorry, but you're talking absolute twaddle. Doesn't matter whether Brussow is a flanker or a tighthead prop, if a guy like Williams wants to hold on, he will. Brussow wasn't milking it. He seriously wanted the cheating Samoan to let go. And as for the cheap shot - anyone would have hit the deck. Your reading of this situation (and subsequent disappointment in Brussow) is just miles off.

Isaia Tuifua's huge hit for Taranaki in the ITM Cup

Compared to this hit, Bismarck put Carter to bed with a soft blanky and a bottle of warm milk and tiptoed out the room.

Midweek Madness - Marland Yarde recovers from cramp to score a try

Offside or not, this should not be allowed. The defense had the move covered, until there was suddenly an extra man in play. Allow this, and you'll start to see all sorts of strategically placed "treatments" to provide the attack with more surprise options. Everything about it feels wrong.
